A whole variety of equipment is used at a construction site for various functions. Some of them are heavy equipment that needs a specialist to operate them while some are simple utility equipment to make things easier. Concrete block making machines, graders with almost 8 feet long blades, and hydraulic jacks are among the most used heavy equipment. Pulverizers are commonly used to break down the material to a smaller size especially the soil. Lifting equipment such as cranes that use wire and rope slings or pick and lift mechanisms are also used extensively to transfer heavy material from one spot
In some places, sand blasting equipment is also used to clean up hard surfaces. Concrete cutters are very helpful to cut through concrete masonry and stone. Soil compactor, to even up the soil foundation, the broomer with powerful sweeping hydraulic machines to clean up a space are examples of sophisticated equipment used in modern constructions.
